This will be an interactive session for people who manage an acquisitions budget but don't manage the corresponding personnel who select materials (e.g. subject librarians). How do you encourage appropriate collection development decisions? How do you help revision collection development for long-time employees, or get others to change their workflows to be more efficient? How do you encourage subject librarians to make data-driven decisions? Attendees will work in groups and participate in role playing scenarios to develop strategies for working with colleagues without having explicit authority over those colleagues' work.
